North Carolina Bill Attacks Natural Health Providers

Have you ever seen an herbalist, naturopath, homeopath, or midwife? Under a proposed bill in North Carolina, these alternative, natural health practitioners could face felony charges. Organic Consumers Association explains:

Alternative health practitioners in North Carolina (NC) and their patients need your help to defeat a stealth bill that flew under the radar of most everyone in the natural health community. Senate Bill 31, which clarifies the penalties for the "unauthorized practice of medicine," essentially criminalizes the practice of unlicensed forms of medicine, which includes the work of many naturopaths, homeopaths, herbalists, aromatherapists, and even some midwives in the state. The bill was adopted by a judiciary committee in early March, and it recently passed the NC Senate. Now, the NC House is set to vote on the bill tonight, and unless NC governor Bev Perdue vetoes it, the practice of natural medicine for many in NC may soon become a more severe criminal offense.

SB 31 states that anyone who practices medicine or surgery without having been first "licensed and registered to do so" will be guilty of a Class I felony. Class I felonies in NC are the least severe kinds of felonies, but they do include things like burning crosses on private or public property, and sexually exploiting children. So if passed, SB 31 will essentially make those who practice alternative medicine without an official, state-sanctioned license and permit, criminals of the likes of sexual predators and cross burners.

Prepare for Radiation from Japanese Nuclear Power Plants Naturally with Brown Seaweed

We share a planet, and even though we may distance ourselves from global tragedies, like the Japanese earthquake, to protect ourselves from their tragic realities, we are not immune from its effects. Radioactive material from the nuclear power plants will reach us, similar to how Mongolian dust has reached the West Coast of the United States in the past. Of course, our exposure will be less than the Japanese, but we still should prepare our bodies.

Pure Brown Seaweed Extract is one way you can protect your body. It has been used since the atomic bombs of WWII and Chernobyl. Susan Weed of the Wise Woman Herbal Series writes:

Miso broth is the classic food for prevention of radiation damage. There's twice the protection if a quarter-ounce/5 grams of dried kelp seaweed is added to the soup. In scientific studies, seaweed was able to neutralize radioactive isotopes in the human body. Researchers at McGill University say radioactive strontium binds to the algin in brown seaweeds to create sodium alginate, a compound easily and harmlessly excreted. Common black tea exhibited the same anti-radiation effects in several Japanese studies.

Ayurvedic Tea: Prokapha and Provata All Natural for Your Health

prokapha_tea.jpg Herbal tea is not just for enjoyable drinking but can actually improve your health. R-U-Ved has two blends that not only taste delicious, they are based on the principles of Ayurvedic medicine, the oldest form of medicine in the world! Each tea is designed for your body-mind type: Vata, Pita, or Kapha

Prokapha Tea:
Cloves, Cardamom, Ginger, Green Tea, Cinnamon

Provata Tea:
Fennel, Licorice, Ginger, Cinnamon, Black Cardamom, Ajwain

At about $5, these teas are very affordable. They are kept very fresh in foil packages for individual tea bags, and each box includes an expiration date as well. The only thing that could make these teas better is if they were made with organically grown ingredients.

Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review be positive or negative.
